A resolution *u passed by tbe Senate April lfith directing the District Commis sioners to communicate to the Senate the amount of certificates of indebtrdnesi com monly called "greenbacks" Issued In pursu ance of the acts of tbe legislative assembly of the District and of Congress; also, tbe amount af assessments made by virtue of said acta to seenre the payments of such cer tificates of Indebtedness; the amount of such assessment* collected aad the amount out standing unpaid, if any, and the reasons why tbe same bave not been collected. *nd whether or not any legislation ta necessary. OI'IHIOH OF THI ATTUIHIT FOB TBB DIS TRICT. A copy of tbe resolution was referred to tbe Attorney for tbe District, who, under date of May 4th, returned tbe same with his opinion, in wbicb be states that section37, act of Congress approved February 21, 1871, to provide a government for the District of Columbia, provided that tbe late board of public works assess upon tbe property ad joining and to be especially benefitted by tbe improvements made by them, a reasonable proportion ol the cost, not exceeding one third of such cost, to be co.lected as all other taxes are collected. An act of the legisla tive assembly of August 10, 1871, p-escribed the mode of asse iment for special Improve ment!, referred to in said act of congress. Jt provided that upon completion or said work a statement or tbe cost be prepared by ibe board of public works, and an assess ment made; that within ten days after, the hoard give notice to ths property holder so assessed, requiring the amount to be paid within thirty days; that in default of pay ment tbe brard should Issue certificates of Indebtedces.i against the property so as sessed, bearing ten per cent. Interest, such ^srlflcates to be alien on tbe property, en f >rclble by sale of the property at the end of one yeat from tha issue of the certificate, and that the purchaser at such sale (subject to a right of redemption) Bbould receive a *ood and perfect title to the property by deed from the District an thcitles. These cer tificates were issued upon particular pieces of property upon default in payment of the assessments, and they carry interest at the rate named; and under tbe act of assembly cited they Were authorized to be issued by the board or public works to third parties at whose request, at the expiration of one year from the date of the assessment?. artifi cate, the property might be sold by the board. Tne act of assembly, May 29, KJ73, extended the time of payment or special as sessment* and authorized the issuance of certiCca:es known as "greenbacks," re ferred to In the resolution. This act did not change the mode of assessments nor forbid the issuance of certificates in default of payments. It extended the time for payment, so that Instead of being payable in one year, they should be payable In five equal annual instalments, with interest at tbe name rate, and required that instead of selling them to third parties toe board should deposit them in the bands of the sinking fund commissioners as seen curlty for the "greenbacks." It required tbe sinking fund commissioners to enforce tbe lien of said assessment certificates In ease of default In the payment of any of tbe five an nual instalments In which assessment cer tificates were payable, by sale of tbe prop erty assessed or so much as might be neces sary to pay the over-due Instalments, with Interest, costs and charges. The certificates and all payments thereon were to be held and applied by the sinking fund commis sioners In tbe payment of tbe principal and interest of the certificates of indebtedness known as "greenbacks." The purpose of the issue of the greenbacks was to extend the time of payment to five years, as they were made payable to bearer, with a semi-annual Interest of eight per cent., and they were made receivable in pay ment of assessments for special Improve ments. No steps bave been taken by the commissioners of the sinking fund to enforce collection of the certificates held by them in pledge for the "greenbacks," and the inference is reasonable that few payments in cash bave been made upon them, because as the "greenbacks," purchasable at a heavy discount, are receivable for assessments, there Is no inducement to pay money. But the payment of assessments In "greenbacks" to the extent to which It has taken place serves to reduce the number of outstanding "greenbacks," and therefore Improves the security for those that remain. Perhaps tne sinking fund commissioners have not been endeavoring to force the collection of assess ment certificates because of tbe resistance of the property-holders to the collection,, or perhaps it is because all the installments of assessments are not due. The First National Bans of New York is the prin cipal holder of the one - year assess ment certificates which had been issued to third parties prior to the authorization of the issue of "greenbacks" and the re quirement that assessment certificates should thereatter be held In pledge for such "gie. nbacks." That bank called VSoth? sinking fund commissioners at different times to sell tbe property charged with such overdue assessments. But In a large number of Instances property-owners have obtained injunctions restraining the sale; and when "?ic8 made the bank, la the absence or other bidders, wa? obliged to become the purchaser. The positions taken in the bills to erjoln these sales are principally that the improvements upon which the assessment? were based were either wholly unauthorized by law or else were illegal, because the cos: was in excess of the appropriation made by aw therefor. There are, however, other ob jections made, such as excessive assessments and errors in the computation of the assess UlCl' Ifla *^e?n bpld by 'be Supreme Court of the District that different property owners cannot unite in a single bill to enjoin collec tion of special assessments from their re spective parcels of property. But with ref erence to the numerous bills now pending at the suit of ?ndlvldual owners In their several i\e< p.a'.*51 beba 1 f, no final adjudication in the District bas yet been made as to whether a Court or Equity bas Jurisdiction of such cases, or whether the racts relied upon by complainants invalidate the assessments or ^e'Oler^be alleged errors actually exist. The First National Bank of New York being the bolder of the certificates Involved in these suits is a party directly Interested, and has therefor been made a defendant In the different cases. In view of the large Inter ests of the bank In the result of tbe suits, the attorney states, that be bas felt constrained to consult tbe convenience of its counsel as respects the hearing of test case* One ca? b?,1 by reason of a technical de Iw. ?- pleadings of complainant a deci sion was not made upon the merits. It is K2^le,Vh?,wever' tbat the case will be re SupremeCourt of the District,but U? / 8 ca8e wln by one side or the ?lber betaken to the Supreme Court of the United Stales. The most serious objections urged against tbe validity of assessments made by the late board or public works do .e? ft,8 rasp?61* assessments made, and which shall hereafter be made, by the Com. mlsBioners of the District. Probably the principal part of tbe assessment certificates held by the sinking fund are based on assess. meats made by the late board of public works. In relative proportion, however, of assessment certificates issued oy the Com missioners and by tbe board of ;pubilc works, and now held In plelge by the sinking fund, can be accn**ately "tateo bv the commissioners of the sinking fund. The reasons why assessments have not been collected are as above slated, ao far as respects tbe assessments held by the First National Bank of New York, and not held In pledge by the sinking fund for redemption of "greenbacks." Probably, however the lnqnlry in tbe resolution relates especially is the assessments SO t*eld by tbe commis sioners of the sinking fund, and designed by law for tbe fund to retire tbe "green. back" certificates, in tbe absence of infor mation upon this subject, It is conjec tured that the sinking fund commission ers have not enforced the collection of over-due assessment certificates held by them, by reason of the resistance to the collection of other as. assment certificates previously issued and held mainly by the First National Bank, or else because the as sessment certificates held by tbe sinking fund commissioners are payable in five an nual instalments, all of which are not yet overdue. The sinking fund commissioners best answer also as to whether any further legislation is necessary, since their 2xp?r.lenc6 ecables them to set forth any dlf ncultle* there may be in collecting the as y*yt?. The collection might be expe dited by afiording the property-holders a fair and inexpensive mode of obtaining re rTkp?Ct of *ny errors or excessive charges In tbe assessments, and by validat ing the assessments held by the com miss ion - tond. subject only to their ?boye-mentloned manner, t ?tlon w on Id not Interfere with the disposition of penning suits respecting the earlier assessment certificates. ??
